“General Hospital” fans were outraged and took to the message boards after the ABC soap opera decided to kill off 4-year-old Jake Webber after his character was removed from life support. His character was left brain-dead after being run over by a hit and run driver in Port Charles.
While deaths have become a standard in the world of daytime television, but it’s almost rare when they decide to kill off a young child.
This isn’t exactly the first time “General Hospital” did something shocking. Back in 1994, Tony and Bobbie’s daughter, BJ, was involved in a horrible car accident that also left her brain-dead. Her heart was than transplanted into her 6-year-old cousin, Maxie.
One fan wrote on abc.com:
“OMG GH! You killed a kid!”User Miztee256 wrote:
“I am soooo done with GH for killing off Jake. There was no reason to do that and I will not watch GH anymore.”
Even though Jake’s death was shocking and heartbreaking, he will be saving the life of fellow Port Charles resident, Josslyn Jacks. Carly and Jasper’s cancer-stricken daughter will be receiving Jake’s kidney.
Other “General Hospital” fans were praising the cast for their performance and were even OK with the writer’s killing of the character. While some didn’t seem bothered by it, other fans were completely disgusted.
For those who don’t watch, Jake wandered away from the house and was hit by a car and the soap will start their search for the person who hit Jake.

“Hey! Isn’t ABC a Disney Network? Aren’t they supposed to be about ‘family?’ Great job killing off kids and destroying families on General Hospital!”

“I am very disappointed that the Disney Corporation has financed a soap opera … which portrays children who are victims of violence. Any hope I had of being able to watch this show again died along with Jake Spencer.”.
